Clintons have a card for everything!

June, a month in which many families celebrate Father’s Day, also sees a number of lesser-known occasions, according to analysis by national card and gift retailer Clintons

Tim Fairs, a director at Clintons, said: 'Let’s spare a bit of time this month to celebrate the turkey, consider the importance of lightning safety and be thankful for juggling, meteors, handshakes and aesthetically-challenged dogs on their dedicated days. I can’t promise that Clintons has a card for each of these occasions, but we do have blank cards that can be adapted – and of course for Father’s Day we have several hundred options in our stores this year.'

He added: 'It is also, I am told, World Naked Bike Ride Month. We are issuing guidance that this is for the Northern Hemisphere only to avoid the possibility of chill Downunder.'
